Question about Refrigerators

2 Answers

Freezer not maintaining proper temp.

I have a brand new sub Zero refrigerator. It is a side-by side. The freezer keeps warming up, sometimes by 22 degrees, but then will go back down to zero after a number of hours. Why is this happening?

A few possibilities here. The fan motor in the freezer could be stalling, or the drawer could be sticking open, or you could be seeing it in the defrost cycle. the freezer on these sub-zeros have a defrost cycle that is electronically controlled, so it should not warm up that much (or hardly at all) I would say you ought to get a servicer out there right away, and see if you can track any sort of cycle or particular time it happens before they come. the sub zero service phone # is on the door frame on the upper left corner inside the freezer. If there are no servicers in your area, sub zero will do whatever is neccesary to remedy the problem. I work for an authorized sub zero servicer and they go to great lengths to keep their customers happy. Good luck!

Sub zero 532. freezer works fine --0 degrees. fridge wont get below 50 degrees. cleaned condenser fins- still no decrease in temp


check the fan that runs between the freezer and the fridge --check fan for ice blockage -debris-or damage / clean or clear blockage --if not running test wiring and connections as well as motor /repair or replace //also check fan damper is not frozen or blocked its flap that opens and closes for air to flow //----ur fridge side is cooled from the the freezer side the cold air is blown in from the freezer if fan or damper is not working correctly than fridge is usually warm and freezer is working properly

Freezer stuck on -20 degrees


well it depends on how long the door was open for during the cleaning, your evap coil was unable to cool the unit due to the warm air coming in, that will cause the evap coil to over frez . un-plugging the unit may work but the best thing to do is force it into a defrost you can do that by pressing and holding the ice key on the key pad for 10 sec or till you hear the freezer shut down this will thaw the ice on the coil and the unit with come back on within 20 to 30 Min's

Sub zero freezer too warm


I believe the freezer has to get down to 7 degrees or lower for icemaker to harvest. Clean your condenser and blow it out. If that doe not fix it you will need service for sealed system
